“Kanye loves Nori more than anything, but to make his world complete he wanted a little boy, an heir," a source told Us Weekly, which claims to have confirmed the news with several insiders. “He's overjoyed!"

Kim is also said to be thrilled as it is apparently her dream to have two children, one of each sex. She is said to be fully embracing being a mother to a little boy, and she has already been spotted looking at clothes for her son in a boutique in New York City.

It’s been speculated that Kim and Kanye considered using IVF during their fertility struggle, which was documented on her family’s reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

 The 34-year-old star reportedly got “very down” about things for a while and was concerned that she might never have another baby.

Stepping out for her first red carpet appearance since announcing she's expecting baby number two, Kim Kardashian admitted that her pregnancy is already taking its toll on her health. Speaking to US Weekly at the CFDA Fashion Awards the Keeping Up With The Kardashian's star said, 'To be honest, I've had really bad morning sickness, day sickness, night sickness. I can barely get out of bed,' But despite feeling so unwell, the style icon showed that even a difficult pregnancy isn't going to throw her off her fashion game. Posing alongside husband Kanye West the brunette beauty, who is believed to be 3 months into her pregnancy, still looked her usual fabulous self.

“I'm so grateful to be pregnant when we didn’t even think it was going to happen,” she later said.

 Neither of the stars have confirmed how far along Kim is, with an insider suggested to Us Weekly that she is already in her second trimester. It is known that she has been struggling with morning sickness though, as she previously admitted she’d been feeling so unwell it had been a struggle to get out of bed in the mornings.
